HAMILTON RESIDENT’S DREAMS ARE NOW DREAMIER WITH A $1 MILLION LOTTO MAX MAXMILLIONS WIN
Toronto, ON – The LOTTO MAX odds have shone in favour of Donald Oliphant of Hamilton! He won a MAXMILLIONS prize worth $1 million in the June 3, 2022, LOTTO MAX draw. He also won $2 on his ENCORE selection, bringing his total winnings to $1,000,002!
Donald, a father, grandfather, and great grandfather, has been a regular lottery player for the past four years. "I play twice a week, and this is my first big win," he shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up his cheque. "I was at home when I checked my ticket using the OLG App and I was excited when I thought I won $1,000. After I did some paperwork, OLG called me and told me I won $1 million!"
"I feel like a million bucks," Donald laughed. "I've never felt this way before. It feels special."
He plans to share this win with his children. "I might treat myself to a new car and consider a trip to visit family," he concluded.
